I've been having fun dressing my baby girl in white and taking her monthly photos. I get a lot of questions on where her outfits and props are from, so I figured I'd share all the photos here and shoppable images at the bottom. Note that each Instagram post has multiple photos. You will need to click through and go to Instagram to see the rest of the photos. Enjoy!

Oops, one month photos of my baby girl belated by a full 2 weeks! She was so sleepy her first month, but has really perked up and we get to see her bright eyes so much more. I thought that by this time I would be back on my game, but I've had soooo many absent-minded moments lately. The most ridiculous and least consequential was me starting Whole30 yesterday because in my mind it was already June 1! There are definitely worse mistakes to make. If you are interested in Whole30, join my unofficial support group for moms on Whole30 -- there is a focus on breastfeeding moms, but all women are welcome (link in bio or here --> http://bit.ly/Whole30-Moms) Also the amazing headband in the second photo was a gift from @sweetscarletblooms.

Five months! We love this baby to pieces. It's amazing to see her personality develop. She is so easily entertained and intrigued. She will squeal and kick her legs like crazy for most anything. But she gets most excited by her brother's antics. She's also surprisingly tolerant of things he does that I would expect to annoy her (like using her as a pillow). She's really easy going and content, unless she realizes that I've left the building, in which case she can shriek for an hour straight (makes it hard to hire a babysitter). She was a great sleeper but now thinks of 4-6:30 am as the opportune time to practice her singing exercises. I always get loads of questions on her outfits, headbands and props, so I've rounded up the details for all her monthly photos (see link in bio or here --> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos) #ekcmonthbymonth #5months #5monthsold #5montholdbaby
So in denial about my 👶🏻🎀 turning six months that it took me 2 weeks to get these photos up! The little lady is really coming into her own. Some of her favorite activities are snuggling, exploring my face, examining her own feet, engaging with her brother in any and every way, and reading books! . She can now expertly guide her bottle into her mouth and hold it there, and insists on not so expertly feeding herself solids too! Her favorite food is (oddly) chicken liver mixed with pumpkin and she dislikes baby cereal. She takes monster naps (something her brother has never done), but still wakes me up multiple times a night (#mombie here). She is super social and loved when I faced her outward in the carrier on Halloween! She squeals, says gee gee gee all the time, and I could swear greets me with a "hey" on occasion! 🌟🌟🌟 For outfit, accessory and prop details from this and our other milestone posts, visit --> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos (or link in bio)
Seven months with this ginormous bundle of love! 💞💞She is getting to be so interactive! She squeals with delight when she sees her big brother and loves to cuddle with him and play with his hair. The two of them snuggle up in her crib most mornings, and it's the sweetest! She is also really into 📕📗📘📙 books and bangs on them enthusiastically. As with many second children, she has skipped straight past most infant toys and her favorite toy is the activity cube that I always recommend for toddlers (it's in my gift guides, which are linked in my bio). We've been introducing more foods and she loves to feed herself. She particularly enjoys garlic and other strong flavors that you might not expect of a baby. For someone with no words, she is quite good at getting her point across! If I stop singing, she starts singing to encourage me to continue! 🎼🎤 She can now find her pacifier and pop it in even in the dark, so cries less at night. We love her more every day 💞. If she would just consistently sleep well at night, I'd venture to call her an easy baby! 🌟For outfit, accessory and prop details from this and our other milestone posts, visit --> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos (or link in bio). #ekcmonthbymonth 💞
8 months! This little lady is a bundle of fun. Things that make her squeal and kick are her brother, books 📚 and her favorite foods. She loves to feed herself, which has motivated her to pretty much perfect the pincer grasp to pick up even tiny pieces of food. She was less motivated to sit but can can now sit pretty well. She is generally happy unless you are trying to get her to sleep. And when she cries it sounds like she is saying "yeah, yeah yeah," which would be more amusing if she wasn't crying! One of the kids' favorite activities now is throwing shrieks back and forth and giggling about it uncontrollably. I do my best to keep them from doing it in the elevator, as it must be annoying to others in such a small space!! They really do love 💞 each other and watching them together is our greatest joy! 🌟For outfit, accessory and prop details from this and our other milestone posts, visit --> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos (or link in bio). #ekcmonthbymonth
Our sweet 👶🏻 girl turned 9 months on this trip so we took the photos early. She loves to sing and dance and can army crawl across a room. She has a sense of humor and often shrieks and squeals in delight. She has been an A+ traveler, which isn't surprising as she loves being around people and seeing new places and things. Just like her brother, she gets into everything including her 9 month photo props. Holding a 9 month old upside down is our tried and true solution. 🙃 I'm on a recreating photos spree. Check my stories for S upside down at 9 months. #ekcmonthbymonth
Ten months!! This baby is not such a baby anymore! She loves to sing, dance and clap! She's not crawling yet, but always on the move - we needed a lot of props and distractions to keep her in place for these photos. She can army crawl at lightning speed. Her fine motor skills are off the charts, which is amazing but scary as she can get into trouble if we turn around for a second. She mimics words like hi, hey, more, mama and dada. And she still thinks her brother is the funniest, yet fights back when he takes a toy she wants. Still no teeth! But I heard teething is less painful for older babies. http://bit.ly/monthly-photos #ekcmonthbymonth
